HOW TO BUY A CAR

HOW TO BUY A CAR

● March is an ideal time to buy a new car. New registration plates are released, so manufacturers give franchised dealerships higher targets – and if they haven’t reached them by late in the month, you may be able to secure a good deal.

● You’ll not be offered a discount, though, so do ask for one. When you’ve finished haggling, ask the dealer to throw in car mats for free – if they refuse, you’ll know that you’ve pushed them to their limit.



● If you’re considering a diesel car, bear in mind that some London boroughs already add a diesel tariff to residents’ parking permits. There’s also a plan to double the congestion charge for diesels by 2020.

● Avoid choosing so many extras that you end up spending more money than if you’d bought the next trim level in the range.

● But do consider the extras that a future buyer is likely to want. Leather seats and a built-in satnav tend to have more appeal these days than a good stereo.
